Another poem!

After my recent little poetic offering on the subject of The Lord’s Supper/Communion/Eucharist, I’ve decided to publish, not so much a poem as a song. I spent a little more time over this one, and it may be sung to the tune of that lovely old “Seekers” number – “The Carnival is over”.

In a world that’s full of sorrow; so much trouble everywhere.
Many fearful for the future; other folk who just don’t care.
It’s a story that depresses; causes sorrow, hurt, and pain.
But the story isn’t ended, for the Lord will come again.

Once He walked this earth so humbly; clothed in flesh, as mortal Man.
Teaching of the Father’s mercy, and His great eternal plan.
For His love is overwhelming; full salvation’s ours to gain.
And the story isn’t ended, for the Lord will come again.

’Though they led Him up to Calvary; crucified Him on the tree;
’Though He gave His life so freely; suffered death for you and me;
’Though His death is all-sufficient, cleansing us from sin and shame;
Yet the story isn’t ended, for the Lord will come again.

’Though His friends so gently laid Him in a tomb ne’er used before;
’Though they rolled a stone to seal it; placed it like a mighty door;
Not e’en death could hold Him captive; in the tomb He’d not remain;
And the story isn’t ended, for the Lord will come again.

Yes, He rose, o’er death triumphant; ascended to the Father’s side;
Sent the Spirit to be with us, that in us He might abide.
And the trumpet soon shall echo; and His folk with Him shall reign.
Still the story won’t be ended – for the Lord has come again!

Thank you, Cannuck Bard. I hope that you will reveal your identity, sometime, so that I may confirm (or otherwise) my filial suspicions!! :-)

Cirsty, nice to hear from you. I've been in my wee (!) room most lunchtimes, and with every class. You'll just have to get a Reading Partner from one of my classes!! :-)
